This short documentary chronicles the people, places, things, and ideas at the core of The Windows, a four-day trek from the back deck of the Exploratorium to the top of Mount Diablo. Led by artist Harrell Fletcher and the Exploratorium's Center for Art & Inquiry in the summer of 2013, the walk involved a dozen hikers and dozens more participants and learning experiences en route to the summit. http://www.exploratorium.edu/arts/the-windows
The arts are a fundamental method of discovery at the Exploratorium. We engage artists in every facet of our work to inspire curiosity and to further an interdisciplinary approach to seeing and understanding the world. From creating long-lasting exhibits on our museum floor to developing unforgettable performances in our public spaces, the Exploratorium has presented the work of hundreds of artists working at the intersection of art, science, and learning. Please browse this video collection of arts related work to see a sample of our diverse arts programming.
